Maad al-Zekri's picture

Video journalist Maad al-Zekri reported on multiple aspects of Yemen’s civil war, including as part of an investigation team that in 2017 uncovered torture at secret prisons run by the United Arab Emirates in southern Yemen. I have travelled to multiple areas around the country to cover the spread of hunger and cholera and the plight of those displaced by the war. My March 2016 photo of a severely malnourished infant, Udai Faisal, at a Sanaa hospital became an iconic image that brought home to readers around the world the horrors of the near-famine created by the war.
